Road Run 20:00 [1] 2.02 mi (9:54 / mi)

Ran to campus to pick up some silicon goo.

Trail Run 1:00:00 [1] 6.08 mi (9:52 / mi)

Ran the bulk of the workout at J-Jones. Ran the XC course they used Friday to start out with. By an hour I figured it was good enough for what I guess is a rest week. The weather wasn't the best, lower 50sF and light rain and I wasn't dressed quite as well I would have liked. Also, given temps have been still topping out in the mid-80sF on most days, lower 50sF feels downright cold. I need to toughen up.

Roller Ski Classic 1:26:00 [1] 12.92 mi (6:39 / mi)

Felt sluggish, and took a while to get the HR into what I usually want for a distance workout. Went west from PLC to Kodak. I was pressed for time, but did as much as I could. Turned out, I was pretty dehydrated, which I think explains the sluggishness.

Cyclo-X 54:00 [1] 12.26 mi (4:24 / mi)

Easy ride on the X-bike, legs a bit sore. Wanted to do some laps at J-jones, but there was a cross-country race, so that was out. Did just a little bit at Homestead. On the way there, some ~10 year old kid on a BMX bike said "do you wanna race?" So I click it up a gear and got out of the saddle. The race was over in less than 5 seconds. I knew it was over when I could hear him go "awwww" from a long ways behind. I think that was the first race win of 2020. Too bad it doesn't count. It only counts if I have a number on. At Homestead, someone has been riding the side trails a bunch. Which is good, except you never know what you're going to find on side trails, there's only 4 possibilities: 1) someone enjoying the outdoors; 2) someone using drugs; 3) a homeless person sleeping; or 4) sex of some sort. I did see some people off on a side trail, given the chance of what they were doing was in the 75% of possibilities you don't want to run into, I opted for elsewhere. And this possibility is at minimum 75% when you consider there's potential for 2 or more of options 2, 3, or 4 occurring at the same time. Well, at least I don't want to see that stuff, but I know I got some real sickos who read my log...

Hike 2:00:00 [1] 6.25 mi (19:12 / mi)

Woke up early to do a hike at RMNP. I didn't sleep nearly as well as I should have and I was really tired. Bierstadt Lake from Hollowell Pk. I got through it. It was a really nice day and not too many people along the trail. Prorated time to 115 AHR.

Wednesday Sep 23 #

Road Run 36:00 [1] 3.48 mi (10:21 / mi)


Road Run 36:00 [4] 6.04 mi (5:58 / mi)
ahr:174 max:185

It popped into my head to try a 5km, and I identified the Sheeps Draw trail as the ideal place. Its gently downhill most of the way, no road crossings, and its just slightly longer than 5km. So I did 6x6min headed down and back. About 2-3 minutes rest. Paces were 5:50, 51, 48, 6:08, 06, 14. The first three, if strung together, would be about an 18:00 5km. Not too bad, if I could string such miles together. Headed back was certainly harder, but I was able to push hard the whole way. It was certainly the hardest workout all summer, except that really warm day, maybe. Afterwards, my gut had some problems and I was really tired.

Tuesday Sep 22 #

Roller Ski Classic 1:02:00 [1] 9.55 mi (6:30 / mi)

From the end of Sheeps Draw. Thought about doing a 5 km down Sheeps draw, which is about exactly 5 km long.
